Timing Belt Replacement & Repair Service in Utica, NY
Your vehicle’s timing belt controls the movement of the engine valves in relation to the pistons and makes sure that they do not come into contact with one other. If the timing belt is not replaced at the manufacturer’s prescribed interval, it can break and cause the engine valves to come into contact with the pistons. In a typical scenario, a broken timing belt results in bent valves and possible damage to the cylinder head. The repairs for this type of damage run into the thousands of dollars and can be prevented by proper maintenance.
Check with your service advisor or check your owner’s manual to see if your vehicle is due to have the timing belt replaced.
